The Christmas Cookie Social is a fun and informal fundraising show to close out the first half of our dance season. Christmas Cookie Social performances are held at First Free Church in Onalaska. All proceeds from this event benefit A Chance to Dance Foundation’s scholarship fund.

Participating classes are selected and invited from each age group of our Children’s Classes. These classes were previously published in our Fall Programming Guide and are listed again below (by assigned show) for your convenience. 

Choreography will be starting in these classes soon. We know that this is a busy time of year for families. If your dancer is not able to participate with their class this year, please let his/her teacher know as soon as possible for planning purposes.

Participating classes will receive an additional email on November 15th with more details including costuming, ticket sales information and more.

Mark your calendar for our first Parent Observation Week of the year!  Parent Observation Week will be held Friday, December 8th - Thursday, December 14th. This week is also our final regular class week of 2023.

You are invited into the classroom to watch your dancer’s ENTIRE CLASS during this special week. Sit back, relax and enjoy watching your child do what they LOVE! We ask that you observe quietly, silence your cell phone and that siblings are monitored and quiet during observation time. Feel free to video, take pictures or even invite grandma and grandpa!

In the event of inclement weather, an email will be sent and Facebook/Instagram posts will be made by 2:00 pm if afternoon/evening classes are canceled (by 8:00 am for morning classes). 

Please note that we do not necessarily follow school closings. It is possible that roads may be cleared by the time studio classes begin or that conditions worsen later in the day when school is in session but afternoon/evening travel is not advised. Any canceled classes may be made up on your own time from our regular schedule of classes. In the event there is not a make up class available, a replacement option will be offered.


If your dancer will be absent from a class, our teachers and administrative staff greatly appreciate you notifying our team via our MDU Absence Form. This form can easily be accessed at the bottom of the main page of our website or CLICK HERE to access now. 


Missing a dance shoe, water bottle, or perhaps a ballet skirt?  Be sure to check out our Lost & Found.  Simply ask the front desk for their assistance, and they will direct you to it.  All items remaining in the Lost & Found on the 15th of each month will be donated.
